Prateek Sadhu: Of Maggi ramen date nights and vegan weddings
Love the way you lie
I lied on my dating profile stating that I am a good cook. I can make decent Maggi. And now my date wants me to cook something. What can I pull off?

If you can cook decent Maggi, then make a Ramen out of it. Cook Maggi in chicken stock rather than water, for depth of flavour. Add thick slices of pork or chicken. The easier way is to buy some bacon and fry it till it’s crisp. Add a boiled egg, chillies and mushroom. You can go crazy with the toppings and make it Japanese date night using Maggi!
Desi vegan feast
I’m having a vegan wedding for a small group of people. What kind of menu would you suggest?
—Tripti K, Via Instagram
India is a vegan heaven if you really understand the regional and sub-regional foods of our country. Pick exotic ingredients like morels from Kashmir or snacks from Rajasthan, and even Bengali cuisine for that matter. It’s much more interesting than doing a West-inspired meal.
Prateek’s signature restaurant, Masque, is changing India’s culinary landscape and was awarded the One To Watch Award by Asia’s 50 Best in 2020
